Houston, TX - September 18, 2007 - Telvent USA, Inc. (Telvent) is pleased to announce a collaboration and licensing agreement with EarthSoft, Inc. (EarthSoft) for the new EQuIS web GIS product leveraging ESRI’s ArcGIS® Server technology.
Under this agreement, Telvent will develop the EQuIS for ArcGIS Server module as part of the EQuIS Enterprise solution. The effort is based on requirements from several major EarthSoft clients for a better viewing and query tool using GIS web technology for their environmental data. Telvent will develop a complete web map module based on ArcGIS Server that will plug into Earthsoft’s existing EQuIS product and allow users to interact with their environmental data on the web. The solution will allow users to build queries, generate graphs, select exports, label results and analytical data from their EQuIS Enterprise installation.
EarthSoft’s EQuIS (Environmental Quality Information System) is the most widely used environmental data management system in the world. Used by government agencies, industrial property owners, environmental consultants, and analytical laboratories, the EQuIS platform manages data for over 140,000 facilities on a daily basis.
Telvent is a market leader with over 150 GIS professionals in developing and delivering enterprise GIS solutions that reduce cost and improve operations for customers across the Energy, Transportation and Environment industries. As a result of the collaboration with EarthSoft, Telvent’s solutions will reach an even wider and more diverse audience.
